More than a week after being placed on paid administrative leave following an on-court confrontation with one of his own players, Morgan State men's basketball coach Todd Bozeman was reinstated Thursday night, a school spokesman said. Bozeman will return to sideline for his team's home game Saturday against North Carolina A&T. Clinton Coleman, a spokesman for Morgan State president David Wilson, said in an interview that "results of the investigation were inconclusive" looking into the incident that led to Bozeman's suspension.

All Ian Chiles wanted, whether he was drafted or not, was a chance to play in the NBA. The 7-foot-2, 260-pound former Morgan State center didn't hear his named called during the NBA draft June 26, but soon he'll get his long-awaited chance to play for an NBA team. On Monday, the Washington Wizards named Chiles to the team's 16-man roster for the Las Vegas Summer League, which begins Friday. The news came as a surprise to Ian's father, who knew the Wizards were considering his son but was unsure whether he'd make it. "I didn't know whether he made it or it was a tryout," Joel Chiles said.

Morgan State lost a game that coach Todd Bozeman says the Bears shouldn't have on Monday. They came out flat against Delaware State (8-18, 4-9 MEAC), a team they took too lightly. “[My players] realize they let one slip away on Monday,” said Bozeman, whose team is 11-14 (9-4) with three regular-season games reamaining. “They realize that. That is probably an eye-opener for them. It may be good to get us refocused as we finish up the conference schedule.” For now, Bozeman warns that the conference tournament is still a long way off, and the Bears need to stay focused on getting better.

At first, Jerell Cooke thought he might want to leave Baltimore for college. The Randallstown senior was recruited mostly by junior colleges, so he was preparing himself for a life away from home. Then Morgan State came calling. “After the … county championship, the [Morgan State] coach called my [high school] coach,” Cooke said.  “Morgan was looking to offer me and they wanted to recruit me. [I told my coach], 'Yeah, I like that.' [He said], 'Yeah, me too.'” Cooke committed to the Bears last month, ensuring that his family and friends will be able to see him play in college.

The attorney for Todd Bozeman said Monday that university administrators violated the Morgan State men's basketball coach's contract and school policy regarding disciplining senior staff members when they placed the 48-year-old coach on paid administrative leave Sunday night. Ricky Lefft, a South Carolina-based attorney, said that neither he nor Bozeman has been made aware by school officials as to why the coach was suspended, and that not being allowed to appeal any action taken against Bozeman was a violation of the contract he signed in 2009.

Of all the college basketball games Todd Bozeman has coached in over the past 20 years, two have given him the most recognition. The first came in St. Louis during the 1993 NCAA tournament, when a Jason Kidd-led California team coached by a 29-year-old Bozeman, who replaced Lou Campanelli after he was fired mid-season, beat two-time defending champion Duke in the Sweet 16. "My guys had always said they wanted to play Duke," Bozeman recalled earlier...

The 2013-14 season for the Morgan State men's basketball team opened with six consecutive losses, grew more encouraging with a 3-1 stretch, but now the Bears are mired in a three-game losing skid. The Bears' 3-10 record might be a source of concern for others, but don't lump in coach Todd Bozeman with that group. “You can't just judge it by the numbers,” Boseman said Monday afternoon. “It is what it is. I'm not trying to [tiptoe] around that. I'd say we're definitely getting better, and we are progressing in a way that we need to progress to get ready for the conference.

When someone you love dies, the stories you tell about them - whether you're telling them to strangers on the street or to family members sitting around the dinner table - don't change. For the most part, it's the same details, same anecdotes, same punch lines, even years after they're gone. It's the tense, unfortunately, that changes. He has a great laugh gets replaced by He had a great laugh. And while that might seem like a minor thing, it's not.

Do you care? On a Thursday afternoon in mid-January, Todd Bozeman halted practice at Morgan State, tossed the basketballs aside, echoed a recurring theme about commitment and posed that question to his players. Do you care? The Bears, bad news for nearly three decades, had posted a few nice wins, but their first-year coach wanted to know if they yearned with their every fiber to do what he expected of a team. That half-hour skull session led to a five-game winning streak in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and dreams of Morgan State's first berth in the NCAA Division I tournament.

The Morgan State men's basketball team is off to a 2-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for the first time since the 2010-11 season, courtesy of Saturday's 73-56 rout of South Carolina State. “[The wins] all are important, particularly in the conference,” Bears coach Todd Bozeman said Thursday morning. “It's important to get off to a good start. We hadn't won our first two conference games in probably a couple years. So this was good. It was good for us to get back on the winning track, and it's important for us to stay focused and keep getting better.

NORFOLK, Va. - Coppin State lost track of the hottest player in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament Friday night, and that's a big reason why it's headed home. Morgan State guard Justin Black eclipsed his career high for the second straight night, pouring in 30 points to lead the third-seeded Bears past No. 7 Coppin State, 79-64, in the semifinals at Scope Arena . The Bears (15-15) will face top-seeded North Carolina Central (27-5) in the title game at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Morgan State forward Thair Heath was unable to move in the minutes after he hit the ground in a game against Coppin State last week. It was in those moments his teammates knew they wanted to win the game in his honor. "The guys really wanted to play hard for him because they know that is the way he does it," Bears coach Todd Bozeman said. "He plays hard on a consistent basis and so they wanted to play hard. " Morgan State secured the 82-77 win that night on Feb. 10, while Heath was taken to an area hospital where all X-rays came back negative and he was released with a concussion.

Ian Chiles is thriving in the paint, shooting the ball well and inspiring fear in opponents who take shots by rejecting many of them. “You win games a lot of time with your guard play,” Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said, “but if you have a strong post presence, it is important, because those are where the higher-percentage shots come from. And also, as a defender, you have someone in there protecting against those higher-percentage shots.”   The 7-foot-2 senior center has blocked 14 shots in the past two games, including a career-high nine against Norfolk Sate on Saturday.    Chiles is second in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with 3.1 rejections per game, and has amassed 68 blocks on the season, and 171 in his career.    Chiles also scored 23 points in Morgan State's (9-13, 7-3)

The Morgan State men's basketball program has led the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in scoring in three of the past five seasons. And the team has assumed that familiar position this winter. Four games into the league schedule, the Bears (6-10 overall and 4-0 in the conference) have averaged a MEAC-best 81.8 points and 15.8 assists per game and shot a league-high 48.6 percent on 121 of 249 shooting. Coach Todd Bozeman credits an evolving comfort level among the players for the offense's emergence.

The only two teams with undefeated records in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference this season -- Morgan State and Savannah State -- won't play each other until possibly the conference tournament. With 13 teams in the league and limited room in the MEAC schedule, each conference team plays 11 opponents at least once and five opponents twice in home-and-away games. That leaves each team failing to face one league opponent, and for the Bears (6-10 overall and 4-0 in the MEAC), that means no games with Savannah State (7-12, 5-0)

Todd Bozeman adored his older brother Danny. It was Danny who taught him to swim, drive and do all the stuff a younger sibling ought to know. When Todd needed money, Danny gave him a buck. When Todd got into scrapes, Danny had his back. When Danny died at 55 in 2007, he left behind an orphaned teenage son, Okoye. Todd knew right away that he would look after the 15-year-old just as Danny had once watched over him. "If something happens to me, Bony, I want you to raise Okoye," Danny had said.

The Morgan State men's basketball team's bid for a 3-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference will unfold Saturday, but it won't be easy. Norfolk State, which will host the Bears (4-10 overall and 2-0 in the league), is 10-7 overall, but sits atop the conference with a perfect 4-0 record. Saturday's contest pits two of the MEAC's four undefeated teams (Hampton and Savannah State at 3-0 each are the other two) against each other, but Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said every league game is crucial.
